I think winter may finally be coming to an end soon! (Knock on wood.) I've heard some birds chirping while out and about, and that is one of my favorite sounds after the relative silence of winter. It's also been warm enough some days to wear my lighter coats and jackets instead of puffy coats OR my thicker sweaters without any kind of coat (as evidenced here). I was actually almost too warm in this getup. I'm also finally feeling a bit more inspired in nearly every aspect of my life, blog included, and I am excited to see what I can come up with content-wise in the weeks and months ahead.
I've worn variations of this outfit a few times in the past few months. After struggling somewhat to come up with an outfit the first time I featured these boots due to their color (since I have a tendency to default to matchy-matchy looks and don't own much in the way of taupe), I now feel more comfortable wearing them in outfits where they don't match anything else (such as here, here, and here). I've always admired looks like this—where everything goes together but doesn't necessarily match—on others, and it's been a longstanding goal of mind to wear more outfits like this and play with color combinations. I tend to find a new favorite combination when I do this!
